Hillary Releases 'Stronger Together' to Coincide With Cancelled Speeches

Hillary Clinton's new book Stronger Together was released on September 6th with dismal sales. According to the New York Times, the first week a total of 3,000 copies were sold. To put that in perspective, Bill O'Reilly's new book, Killing the Rising Sun, sold 103,000 copies the first day.

"I've never even heard of it. It was released September 6th, supposed to coincide with a number of Stronger Together speeches. Oh, these were the ones that she was supposed to give those important speeches. And she had pneumonia," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Now it was all beginning to make sense.

"So it was her pneumonia that caused the sales to be so bad," Glenn said.

"You mean that she was overheated or dehydrated," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

"Or pneumonia," Glenn insisted.

"She won't drink water, this woman," Stu said.

"Except she drinks a lot of water," Co-host Pat Gray added.

"Right. Don't try telling her to drink her water, I'll tell you that," Stu said.

"Except when she's drinking water," Glenn added.

"You don't have to tell her because she drinks it all the time," Pat confirmed.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Ooh. Ooh. Hillary Clinton's new book Stronger Together.

JEFFY: Nice!

GLENN: It's out now. First week of sales, New York Times, said they sold 3,000 copies.

STU: Wow, that's great.

JEFFY: Congratulations.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: 3,000 copies.

GLENN: 3,000 copies.

PAT: Remember when she got an $8 million advance from that book a few years ago?

GLENN: So that one only sold 85,000 copies in the first week.

PAT: Altogether? Oh, in the first week.

GLENN: In the first week.

PAT: Okay. Which is decent, but not --

GLENN: No, that's pretty good. In today's --

PAT: It wasn't today's --

GLENN: Eh, it's close. You know, it was probably like -- it's probably like your first week selling 50,000 copies now.

PAT: 3,000 copies though --

GLENN: We used to sell -- you know, ten years ago, you could sell --

JEFFY: I'll bet you 2,000 of it was the foundation.

PAT: Well, Bill said -- we interviewed Bill O'Reilly about his book, and he said he sold 103,000 in the first week.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: That's really good.

PAT: For today, that's incredible.

GLENN: For today. Yeah.

STU: And to be clear, I think he said he sold 103,000 in the first day.

PAT: Oh, did he really?

STU: Because the book came out Tuesday, right? The first week is not even over yet. I think he said it was the first day.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Wow.

PAT: Wow. Wow.

GLENN: Wow. Yeah, he's a machine. He is absolutely a machine.

PAT: Impressive. Really is.

STU: Sort of unfair to compare anyone to Bill O'Reilly's book sales at this point.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. But, still, he is a machine. So that's what we -- we used to do, you know -- I think Common Sense did what? 130 --

PAT: I know. Back in the day. 128.

GLENN: 128 the first day, I think.

PAT: I think it was the first minute and a half.

GLENN: I think it was before it went on sale. They're all at a Trump warehouse at this point.

JEFFY: You're saying this to Milo's prediction.

GLENN: Yeah. It's amazing. Because Vince Flynn, at the end -- I mean, Vince Flynn was one of the greatest booksellers ever. And Vince was -- he came up and he was like, "Man, you just sell books like crazy." And I'm like, "Shut up, Vince Flynn." He's like, "No, it's not the days of Tom Clancy." And it's not even the days of Vince Flynn now.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: It's not. That's what makes J.K. Rowling's book sales so unbelievably impressive. 450 million copies of that series when you have a tough time selling 3,000.

GLENN: Yeah, 400 to 700,000 copies sold in one book. The days of million seller books --

PAT: Used to happen all the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Well, from major books. Major authorize.

GLENN: Yeah. They rarely, rarely happen. You sell 400 to 700,000 books, that is a wildly successful book.

PAT: And she has over this time sold 450 million copies.

GLENN: That is crazy. And Hillary Clinton's new book in the first week sold 3,000 copies.

PAT: That's --

JEFFY: A little way to catch up to J.K.

PAT: A little ways.

GLENN: Stronger Together. Look at it, New York Times.

PAT: You know, if it catches fire in the next couple days, she could be up to 3500 by the end of the month.

GLENN: Yeah, at the end of the month.

(chuckling)

GLENN: She's got to give them away at like Waffle Houses and stuff.

PAT: Well, yeah, there's some work to do between now and then, but still.

GLENN: I've never even heard of it. It was released September 6th. Supposed to coincide with the number of Stronger Together speeches. Oh, these were the ones she was supposed to give those important speeches. And she had pneumonia.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: So it was her pneumonia that caused the sales to be so bad.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: You mean that she was overheated or dehydrated.

GLENN: Or pneumonia.

STU: She won't drink water, this woman.

PAT: Except she drinks a lot of water.

STU: Right. Don't try telling her to drink her water, I'll tell you that.

GLENN: Except when she's drinking water

PAT: You don't have to tell her because she drinks it all the time.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
